There have been problems with the podcast feed for "mintCast", apparently as a result of a bug in Wordpress. The feed contains multiple "enclosure" tags containing the same audio over and over again. While the mintCast hosts are looking for a fix I would like to find a local work-around.
I have also encountered a problem with the "Pod Delusion Extra" feed which contains multiple enclosures in some episodes. Unlike the "mintCast" example I don't want to lose these enclosures but want to find a way of repackaging them into individual episodes.
These problems affect some podcatchers, the modified Bashpodder I use being amongst them. To counteract this problem I have written two short Perl scripts to copy and clean each feed before submitting it to my podcatcher.
